A -special dispatch to the St. Louis 7.'
publiean from DuQuoln, dated 23d hist.,
ays, tlierc arc no new developments
from the seat of war In Franklin county.
The idea that tlierc is an extensive baud
of Kuklux In Fraukliu county Is fast losing
ground ; that tlierc are an insignificant
few of this klau there is no doubt, but
that they exist in large numbers is not
believed by those whose statements are
entitled to credence. The great
majority of the citizens of
the said county arc law-abiding
people, and it is hoicd that the public
will not regard the Inhabitants as night
robbers and cut-throats, as uilglit bu Im
plied by tho numerous and wild reports
afloat, and it Is the wi-h of all that the
raiders of last Monday night had been
killed outright, as it is feared that justice,
after all this parade, will not get its dues.
Had the Williamson county trouble
been checked in their inclpleucy it is not
at all likely that these latter diflleultics
would have occurred.

thu pupil should study separately and
elaborately, the nine books of Herodotus,

tion, let them forsake Bancroft and sink
Prccntt into the lowest strata of obliter
ation. Hume, Macaulay, Unite, Gibbon
and Kaullnson should also Iro forgotten.
Tho Cairo High School should not de
scend from their lofty height.
In tho sciences, let the pupils have
plenty of scope. Give tlicni Physics, Min
ing, Mechanical nnd Civil Engineering,
Natural Philosophy, Mlnercology and
Chemistry. They can master tliein, for
"Pupil" says, "He labors under the im
pression that every one Is similar to him
self." Then, there is Comparative Philology
and English literature. Next .oology
including Human Anatomy aud IMiy.-l-
ology. Theje can bo Imparted lu a course
of familiar lectures with dlaglauudle and

he mean to say, that when a scholar has
passed a satisfactory examination that
lie should live in darkness in regard to
the knowledge imparted to the world by
learned men of other tongues f" I would
not, for an Instant, again be so rash as
to make such an abominably foolish state
ment. For, as I have before mentioned,
my feelings are like those of "Pupil's."
Charles Itudy has lately published, in
three volumes, "The Chinese. Mandarin
Language," aud it is with peculiar
pleasure and unfeigned modesty that 1
present to thu readers of the Bi'i,i.j:tin a
hort notice of this admirable book in
tills place, hoping at the same time that
tho views I entertain on the subject may
bo thu same as tho-e of "Pupil."
Any work must be tested by Us general
usefulness, and not by the good Inten
tions ot its author or even to too great a
degree, by the skill and faithfulness with
which it lias been executed. I think,
upon close examination, Mr. Biuly will
o loiinu to liavo given to the public a
work not only having the merit of being
a labor of love extending over years of
careful study, but one that iiiu-t fill a
growing need, and prove to bo of prac
tical worth concerning tho studv
ol" the Chinese lanirungc. It
may he said that its im
portance is dally increasing. With the
emigration from China continually set
ting lu upon the Pacific coast, and ex
tending Itself even to our most Eastern
cities, a smattering, at least, of the lan
guage of the people becomes of practical
utility to a constanntly growing elas of
mericaus. I- or thu obtaining of such
knowledge I think It would be no more
than light to drop German, or at least
not take up trench, till year after next.
Ihus wo can introduce a new tongue, by
giving preceuence 10 uiiiiicbc. It Is to
this nation that we send our missionaries
to chrlatlanla! and to civilize. And to
know tho first rudiment (the first It'sl of
Eastern wisdom, would not bo amiss to
any pupil of tho High School wishing to

reason why Chinese should be snoken in
our schools, arises from tho fact that it is

Then, let us not do away with the

already estimable course, let us add tho
abstruse text-books on Cosinotlietle 1
Idealism aud Hypothetical licallsm, so
